It’s funny, isn’t it?” she said, smiling lightly. “I ignored him like he doesn’t exist. But, I am also craving for his attention. Damn, I am waiting to see him walking towards me and say hello. I wanted him to notice me. I wanted him to really look at me. To talk to me. I wanted to hear everything he’s going to say. I wanted him, more than anything else.” she realized, that no matter what she said, she’s always ending up with the same conclusion. As if she’s stuck in the same place all over again. As if she’s been hitting the same button, hoping it will change. With heavy sigh, she said, “Yet I just can’t. I just can’t be with him, when his heart already belongs to someone else.

At the mention of the word “period”, I watch him pale and look away. At this I wonder, when did the world become such a place that men are embarrassed by the most natural function of a womb, when they had once called a womb home.

If you come to me as an ocean with big waves, surely, without hesitating, I will jump into you and drown. For someone who despises the water, that is how much I love you.
—  Lukas W. // How much I love you
you asked, “what is it like to fall in love?”
and i replied, “it’s a lot like dying. when you fall in love, you see yourself in their eyes and everything you believed about yourself begins to disappear. the things you once hated about yourself don’t seem so bad because you realize someone has found fondness in your flaws. and those things you hated about yourself that you defined yourself by, they begin to cease to exist. and you allow yourself to become reborn into the person they see: the real you. when you fall in love, you watch yourself die and it’s beautiful.

I thought of you,
more than I should,
and I always wish
that I can hold you,
kiss you,
touch you,
even if I knew
I never could.
—  ma.c.a // Help me, I’m falling
Please don’t die.
Not while
I’m still breathing.
Not while
My heart’s still beating.
We are strangers for now.
But maybe…
One day
Things will change.
Maybe…
One day
We will
Go back to
How things used
To be.
Back to when
Things were simpler.
Whether it’s in a year
Or ten…
I will wait for you.
Because
We have so much
More to do together.
I will be patient for you.
Because
We have so much
More to live for.
You are too young
To die at an early age.
You will not live life
To the fullest,
Until you live life
With me.

You ever hear a song that you wish you wrote? Not just because it’s incredibly beautiful, but because the feelings and emotions behind the lyrics are so familiar to you, to the point that you’re pretty sure that you’ve said the words in your mind a million different ways and times but was never able to put them into your own words.
—  Marley C. // Heartsongs.
Oftentimes, we speak of words we are dying to hear from those we truly love, in hopes they will return the very same words back to us.
and i so badly wanted the little things to not matter. i didn’t want the thought of you touching another girl to matter or the fact that you probably don’t even think about me. i wanted it all not to matter. i wanted you to not matter because if you didn’t matter then it wouldn’t hurt that you haven’t even called in a year. it wouldn’t hurt that i still long to hear your voice at the end of the day. i didn’t want it to matter because when it matters it hurts. it hurts like hell. god, why does it hurt so much. i need it to not matter. i need you not to matter. why do you matter..

I hope that you will find yourself before anything else, that you will not run out of your house in the middle of the night just to search for the missing pieces of you in strangers. I hope that you will stumble upon a love you live to give away, the kind that flows endlessly, that lives forever. I hope you will be happy for a long, long time.

You thought you’d never fall in love even though you wanted to.
It just wasn’t in the cards, there was no one right for you.
Your mind was too complex, your personality severe.
No one could relate and soulmates weren’t real.
That’s why it took so long to let that boy inside your head.
And why you felt so vulnerable after everything you said.
But when you told him that you loved him, he said he loved you more.
And for the first time in your life, you had no regrets at all.
You still can’t comprehend how that boy loves you relentlessly every single day.
But you finally understand how hearing someone’s voice can make everything okay.
He taught you what it means to have a person feel like home.
And that being with someone else means you don’t have to be alone.
He knows when to hold you close and he knows not to let go.
He says you mean the world to him but you already know.
He always wipes your tears but he hates it when you cry.
He forgives you when you hurt him because he knows you didn’t try.
You don’t know how you got him and you really don’t know why.
But when he tucks you into bed, you see your future in his eyes.
I love the sound of your voice whispering in my ear, i love that the scent of you is still lingering in my room. I love lazy days in bed with you, having you here chest to chest, looking into your eyes and seeing my future with you. Your hands are tracing every curve of my body, while I trace the curve of your lips with mine. Here, with you, pulling you closer with every gentle kiss, my heart whispers I am home.

We all face difficult times.
But what matters is how we react to it. 
And this is where our upbringing comes into play.

At this moment in time, you have a new favorite song. I have a new favorite color. You have a new love in your heart. I have a new hopeful hand to hold. We have so many new things to learn, to catch up with, but we never once forgot the fire we both had when we still had each other.
